Mini is probably the most reconized product of the British industry in general, although its designer, Sir Alek Isigonis (Sir Alec Issigonis), by origin was Greek. It is also one of the few true icons of the world automotive industry.
Produced from the 1959 until 2000, and during that time more than 5,000,000 copies were made.
Today, the owner of the trademark rights to the Mini is the BMW manufacturing firm that is also a successful selling Minis, although it is now a completely different vehicle.

Follow-up comment: by AllCarCentral's Geoff Wheatley
Nice to see that the Mini is still popular throughout the world. The original car was the result of a study that had been completed by Morris Car Company as early as 1963. As a result a team was set up to design this small car that was seen as a rival to the then popular Austin A 30. The idea and design of the cross power engine driving the front wheel was the creation of the so-called Greek who in reality was British born with a Greek name. He was one of the leading designers in the UK including his work during WWII. The current Mini is quite a different animal from the original and was designed by BMW to be made in the UK, which is the case today. No one ever thought that this car in both versions would be so popular and some of us are waiting for Stage Three in the Mini story!
